Sour / Wild Ale
Mammoth Lakes, CA
Commercial Description: There’s a place our brewers visit where the trail flows perfectly for mountain bikers, hikers and campers from the surrounding wilderness converge, and a cold mountain stream feeds an abundance of wild berries. A paradise so blissful that even the birds and the bears allow the gooseberries to grow free. This little Sierra Shangri-La and the berries it produces are the inspiration for our second annual sour. Like our Elderberry Sour, Gooseberry Sour was soured in old oak barrels, but unlike Elderberry, Brettanomyces was added to the barrels. Gooseberries and currants were then blended in after the aging process just before bottling.
